Ersan Ilyasova and the Hawks have agreed to a one-year, $6.0 million deal, according to Shams Charania.
Mike Muscala is expected to have an expanded role this year and much of that should come at center, where Atlanta would otherwise rely on Dewayne Dedmon and Miles Plumlee. Either way, Ilyasova isn't a high-upside fantasy target after averaging 10.4 points, 1.2 triples and 5.8 rebounds with Atlanta last year. His arrival also allows John Collins to develop slower, but expect him to overtake Ersan as the season progresses. Jul 13 - 12:12 AM

Jessica Camerato of CSN Philly doesn't expect the 76ers to pursue free agent Ersan Ilyasova this summer.

Ilyasova was a great fit in Philly before his trade to Atlanta, but one of the reasons the 76ers moved on is because he's going to be looking for a longer-term contract this offseason than the 76ers were interested in offering. Ilyasova turned 30 this month and finished the season with averages of 13.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.7 3-pointers on 43.2 percent shooting. Expect him to draw a lot of interest from contenders this summer.

Ersan Ilyasova (calf) played 22 minutes in Game 4 vs. the Wizards, scoring six points on 2-of-3 shooting.

He also added five rebounds with one assist and one triple. Ilyasova was considered probable to play after getting kicked in the calf during Game 3, but it doesn't look like it will be an issue going forward. He had a nice stretch at the end of the regular season, but his fantasy value is pretty low these days with Paul Millsap healthy.
Apr 25 - 12:07 AM

Ersan Ilyasova (calf) is "ready to go" for Monday's Game 4 matchup with the Wizards.

Ilyasova got kicked in the calf during Game 3, but he was never expected to miss Game 5 tonight. However, with Paul Millsap healthy, Ilyasova won't play much more than 20 minutes, rendering him a non-factor in most formats.
Apr 24 - 6:27 PM

Ersan Ilyasova (calf) is probable to play in Monday's Game 4 against the Wizards.

He should continue to flirt with close to 20 minutes off the bench, but he won't be making a major impact on the box score with Paul Millsap healthy.
Apr 23 - 5:04 PM

Ersan Ilyasova scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting in a start on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Ilyasova did his damage in just 18 minutes even though Paul Millsap (rest) was out of commission tonight. He hasn't done too much to build on a strong start with Atlanta, and will be a dubious DFS option in the playoffs with Millsap healthy.
Apr 12 - 11:44 PM

Jose Calderon, DeAndre Bembre, Taurean Prince, Ersan Ilyasova and Kris Humphries will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Pacers.

In case you missed it, the Hawks will be resting Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Tim Hardaway Jr., Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard tonight, so guys like Ilyasova, Prince and maybe Malcolm Delaney will be forced to take on most of the offensive burden tonight. Ilyasova is certainly someone to consider throwing out there in DFS.

Ersan Ilyasova will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Cavs.

Paul Millsap (knee) will be back in the starting five tonight, so Ilyasova's minutes will likely be in the lower-20s. His value takes a pretty decent sized hit running with the reserves.
Apr 9 - 2:46 PM

Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) vanished on Sunday with Paul Millsap active, scoring just four points with two assists, one steal and one block in 20 minutes.

Ersan started again but that's not going to last much longer. He played well as a reserve once he joined the Hawks, but takes an inevitable hit now that Millsap is healthy. Give him a few more games if your waiver wire is barren, but don't hold onto him at the expense of a higher-upside FA.
Apr 2 - 9:06 PM

Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) will play vs. Brooklyn on Sunday.

Paul Millsap is returning from a knee injury today but he'll come off the bench, as the Hawks will likely limit his minutes as a precaution. Ilyasova was effective even as a reserve with Atlanta, so Millsap's return doesn't necessarily make him a cut.
Apr 2 - 5:12 PM

Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Nets.

This is a new injury for Ilyasova, but it's not expected to force him to the sidelines. Paul Millsap (knee) is questionable to return on Sunday, so Ilyasova's window for fantasy value is closing anyways.
Apr 2 - 1:12 PM

Ersan Ilyasova scored 13 points with four rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

With Paul Millsap (knee) out for the last eight games, Ilyasova didn't exactly light it up with averages of 13.0 points, 8.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.6 treys on 36.6 percent from the field. He was actually better off the bench, so maybe he can revive his value in the second unit. He's still a guy to possibly drop with Millsap coming back as soon as Sunday.
Apr 1 - 8:06 PM

Ersan Ilyasova made 5-of-10 shots with two 3-pointers to score 14 points on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, three assists and one blocked shot.

Ilyasova played 32 minutes and should continue to get elevated playing time with Paul Millsap (knee) out at least two more games. He was coming off a strong double-double and played well against vs. his former team tonight, and his rebounds would have been higher if Dwight Howard hadn't dominated with 20 boards.
Mar 29 - 10:08 PM

Ersan Ilyasova double-doubled vs. the Suns on Tuesday with 18 points and 12 rebounds.

This was his first double-double as a member of the Hawks. He finished 6-of-15 from the field and 4-of-6 from the line with one assist, one steal and two triples in 33 minutes, and he's worth deploying in standard leagues with Paul Millsap (knee) out at least two more games. Hopefully he will go on a run now that he snapped his streak of three straight games with single-digit points.
Mar 28 - 11:32 PM

Ersan Ilyasova grabbed a season-high 18 boards against the Nets on Sunday, adding nine points, one assist and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

That's a lot of rebounds and it's still not close to his career-high 25 from 2012. Besides those boards, he was actually tearing it up before Paul Millsap got hurt, but he's been down as a scorer since. In those five, Ilyasova averaged 11.8 points, 9.0 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.6 treys on 37.7 percent from the field in 29.2 minutes per game. Bad shooting aside, Ghostface Ilya should still be in starting lineup with Millsap still having some swelling on Sunday.
